Toby Hadoke's 2006 one-man Edinburgh show Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf has been adapted into a full-cast radio show for BBC7.

The autobiographical piece about Hadoke's life-long obsession with the programme features former Doctor Who stars Louise Jameson (as Hadoke's mother) and Colin Baker in the cast. Early Doors star James Quinn plays The Voice Of The BBC, and comic Alfie Joey also plays a number of supporting roles.

Hadoke said: "I can't believe that we got not one, but two Doctor Who actors to throw themselves into the project with much gusto. Louise was always top of the list to play Mum, but we never thought we'd get her. And then when Colin offered his services I turned into a giddy child."

The show has already been recorded at BBC Manchester and will air across two episodes on July 20 and 27.

BBC Audiobooks also plans to release the show on CD at around the same time.

You can still see the show live, though, as Hadoke continues to tour the original one-man version, concluding with a brief run at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.
